Behavioral Health

As a Behavioral Health caregiver at Aurora, you'll coach and mentor patients toward physical, emotional, mental, and behavioral health. With empathy, high emotional intelligence, and a non-judgmental disposition, you'll provide exceptional care at every level, whether inpatient, outpatient or through our Partial Hospital Program. As a non-profit organization, we serve a patient population that is as diverse as our caregivers, so you'll have the potential to treat children, adolescents or adults struggling with eating disorders, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, ADHD and more, at any of our six area locations.

Integrated Approach

Work with physicians and other caregivers in Aurora's fully integrated hospital system to treat the whole patient and their family. Aurora offers caregivers the opportunity to contribute in a collaborative environment that offers behavioral health support at every emergency department and via telehealth. We know that mental health is as vital for our patients as their physical health.


Our caregivers are a group of strong, independent professionals who work as a collaborative, multidisciplinary team – throughout our hospitals, clinics and behavioral health locations. As a member of the team, you’ll provide your expertise, while gaining experience and knowledge from your co-workers, helping you grow professionally and our patients to achieve the best possible outcomes.   

Philosophy of Care

At Aurora, we believe in a holistic approach to healing from mental health and substance abuse problems. We think hope, healing, empowerment and connection make it possible to recover from severe depression, bipolar disorder, psychotic disorders, substance abuse and self-destructive behaviors. Treatment plans are personalized for each patient, whether 5 or 65-years-old, and are made with an interprofessional team approach. You will see your efforts realized, not only in the outcomes of your patients, but also as part of a large healthcare system and in the individual communities we serve. 


Our focus on integrated health is exemplified at our Kradwell School, giving students who struggle in a traditional educational environment the opportunity to excel through close relationships with hospital staff and their own personalized learning plan.

Community Involvement

We don’t always stay within our own four walls. Our caregivers support the community in a variety of ways, from volunteering and partnering with local nonprofits to providing educational programs at schools and universities. We help in any way we can to tackle important issues like opioid abuse, bullying and depression because we want to make our communities stronger.
